Jets fan gives woman with cancer a game to remember

by Jason Friesen @NHLJets / WinnipegJets.com

They don't call Manitoba "friendly" for nothing.

When Winnipeg Jets fan Ryan Delong found out that none of his friends could go to the November 18 game vs. the New Jersey Devils with him, he got the idea to give his extra ticket to somebody who normally wouldn't have the opportunity to go to a Jets game.

He created a posting online for the seat, asking people to explain why they deserved the ticket. In the end, it was Leslie MacKay, a single mother battling breast cancer and lymphoma.

NASHVILLE, TN - A third period rally came up short on Monday night, as the Winnipeg Jets saw their four-game win streak come to an end with a 5-3 loss to the Nashville Predators at Bridgestone Arena.

The loss was also the Jets first against a Central Division opponent, after winning each of their first four within their division.

Mathieu Perreault scored twice, his third and fourth goals since coming back from a lower-body injury three games ago, and Tyler Myers added a single in the loss.

The difference may have been the second period, when Nashville scored three times to open up a 4-1 lead, with two of those goals coming on the power play.

GAME DAY: Jets open road trip in Nashville

NASHVILLE, TN - Ben Chiarot will see his first regular season action since Oct. 20 tonight when the Winnipeg Jets (12-4-3) open a four-game road trip in Nashville against the Predators.

The 26-year-old Chiarot's opportunity comes after Toby Enstrom suffered a lower-body injury in Saturday's 5-2 win over the New Jersey Devils.

"It's been long. It's been a process. You start to lose your mind a little bit when you're skating in circles every day like that. But it should all pay off," said Chiarot. "You do all the right things, and good things should happen."

He'll have a familiar partner on the blue line, as Chiarot will be on the left side with Dustin Byfuglien on the right. Head coach Paul Maurice says after this morning's optional skate that he won't try to manage Chiarot's minutes much tonight.

"He's a fit man and he's worked hard," said Maurice. "Most of what he's got to get done is in a 10-15 foot area. So he'll go out and play regularly. We won't spend any time wondering how he's feeling."

Jets, minus Enstrom, begin four-game trip

Tucker Poolman recalled as Jets fly to Nashville

by Jamie Thomas @JamieThomasTV / WinnipegJets.com

WINNIPEG - So many things have been going right for the Winnipeg Jets in the month of November.

They've lost only once in regulation, going 6-1-1 during the second month of the NHL season after Saturday's 5-2 win over the New Jersey Devils.

But early Sunday morning, the Jets announced that defenceman Toby Enstrom will be lost for up to eight weeks with a lower-body injury. Considering the amount of man games lost to injury during the 2016-17 season, they've been fortunate to avoid long-term injuries like this in the opening quarter of the new campaign.

But that doesn't lessen the sting of losing a reliable Top 4 defender.

Tweet from @JamieThomasTV: Look for #NHLJets to recall Tucker Poolman today as it appears Toby Enstrom will be out 8 weeks with a lower body injury (which is unrelated to previous knee issues) #NHL

"He's been great all year and anytime you lose a guy who eats up a lot of minutes like him, it's going to be tough," said Jets captain Blake Wheeler. "(It will) be an opportunity for some guys to step up. It's kind of what needs to happen because there are going to be injuries throughout the year."

The Evolution of Jacob Trouba

D man never truly discovered his talents in hockey and the direction it would take him until his mid-to-late teens

by Ryan Dittrick @ryandittrick / WinnipegJets.com

Former NHL defenceman Al Iafrate appeared in 799 regular-season games over his 14-year career.

He scored 152 goals, had 463 career points, was a four-time All-Star and held the NHL record howitzer - a 105.2mph slap shot - for more than 16 years.

He also had an eye for the very talent he made famous with the Leafs, Capitals, Bruins and Sharks.

"I played with Max Iafrate growing up and I would skate with him and his dad a couple times in the summer," fellow Michigan native and current Winnipeg Jets defenceman Jacob Trouba said.

"Al actually pulled me aside when I was 14 or 15 and talked to me and my dad. He said he saw something in me, and that something could happen one day with my skill level. My dad didn't really think anything of it and neither did I, but looking back at it now, it's kind of a cool thing that happened - it really was the start of it all."

Jets finish perfect home stand with win over Devils

Five Jets finish with two points; Hellebuyck makes 34 saves

by Mitchell Clinton @MitchellClinton / WinnipegJets.com

WINNIPEG - All the Winnipeg Jets offence needed was 3:50 to break open an up-tempo, back-and-forth matinee affair against the New Jersey Devils.

The Jets (12-4-3) scored four times in that span in the second period, paving the way to a 5-2 win - the team's fourth in a row - and a three-game home stand that finished with three victories.

"I thought they were really good in the first. We got a little bit quicker, and kind of settled into the game. It was one of those games that everyone needed to be good at one point or another," said head coach Paul Maurice.

"Connor Hellebuyck was really good in the first and made a couple of good saves to keep it at zero. Our penalty kill was really important in the second as well, and got the offence going as well - all four lines in on the game.

"Everybody had a piece in that one."

Jets prepared for fast-paced match-up with Devils Saturday

Three-game home stand wraps up with 2:00pm puck drop

by Mitchell Clinton @MitchellClinton / WinnipegJets.com

WINNIPEG - A three-game home stand comes to an end on Saturday when the Winnipeg Jets face off with the New Jersey Devils in the first afternoon puck drop of the season at Bell MTS Place.

Both teams come in with identical 11-4-3 records, and worked some overtime in their last outings. The Devils dropped a 1-0 decision to the Toronto Maple Leafs on Thursday, while the Jets rallied from a 2-0 deficit to beat the Philadelphia Flyers 3-2 in a shootout that same night.

"I think it's going to be close to the fastest game we'll play all year," said head coach Paul Maurice of the Devils. "(They're) the fastest team we've seen."

Buckle up.
